The youthful trachybasaltic cinder cones are located south of the Río Curinhuás and west of Pearl Lagoon. The cones have well-defined, steep-walled craters which are about 50-60 m across. The easternmost crater is open to the west, the other 2 are circular.
Based on the fresh vegetation and relatively low vegetation cover, it is thought that they could have formed only a few thousands years ago.
Other trachybasaltic to trachytic Quaternary cones along the central Nicaraguan Atlanatic coastal plain are found at Pearl Lagoon and Kukra Hill.
